We are moving again today. This time, we are heading south into Tuscany toward the town of Montalcino. By Sunday evening, we will be in Ostia Antica which is right next to the Rome Airport so that we can leave on Monday morning. I will be off the net until then as the internet will not be available in Montalcino. I will have access again at Ostia.
We made a surgical strike on Florence yesterday to see the Uffizi. It was not as crowded as I expected thanks to their strict entry control. Florence itself was a madhouse, already in full summer mode with tourists everywhere. It also poured rain which messed up my planned shopping.
I also laid low last night. I have been feeling a bit off-- very tired and with a bad tummy-- so I had a yogurt from the store and skipped dinner. I was in bed by 8:30, hoping that 10-11 hours of sleep might help me bounce back.
We are off to Pisa to find our rental car and to try to visit the Leaning Tower. After that, we take the map and head south.
